1. MCoBeauty Ultra Stay Flawless Foundation dupe for Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

Giorgio Armani sure does have a fancy ring to it, and being an Italian luxury fashion house, it comes as no surprise that they do produce some highly desirable products. But one of MCoBeauty’s extremely popular dupes is proving a higher price point doesn’t always mean the product will be better.

The MCoBeauty Ultra Stay Flawless Foundation is being considered the more affordable dupes of the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. The more surprising factor of this is that while Giorgio Armani’s product sits just over $100, the MCoBeauty equivalent doesn’t even hit the $30 mark.

As well as scoring extra points for its vegan and cruelty-free status, the MCoBeauty foundation provides full-coverage and comes in a varied number of shades. The long-wearing formula also lasts from day through to night, while saying no to oil and shine.

If you are not sold just yet, let it be known that for a mere $29, you are also getting a product with soothing, nourishing, and revitalising ingredients of chamomile and ginseng root extract – love that for our skin.

3. MCoBeauty XTENDLASH Black Extension Mascara dupe for Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara Rich Pitch Black

Could we speak more highly of this mascara? Probably not. It can be so hard to find a mascara that you can trust every day, no matter the weather or what your day brings. But we can proudly confirm that MCoBeauty’s XTENDLASH Black Extension Mascara will most definitely provide you with the comfort you need to walk around with confidence.

4. MCoBeauty Instant Concealer Camouflage & Contour dupe for Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer

This dupe is well and truly one of the more popular, and heavily noted, ones of all the MCoBeauty products. While the Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer is an impressive product, with its full coverage, creamy formulation, and multiple shades, the MCoBeauty Instant Concealer Camouflage and Contour is its more affordable dupe.

Off the bat, MCoBeauty’s concealer sits at $20, while Tarte’s concealer sits at $50, making it the more appealing option from an affordability point of view. While MCoBeauty’s Instant Concealer doesn’t come in as many shades as Tarte’s concealer, there are still multiple to choose from, making it still a viable option.

The product is also highly pigmented, giving you a full coverage that blurs imperfections, conceals dark under-eye circles, and leaves you with a smooth finish. If you love the product that much you can also stretch out its uses, and instead of just using it as an under-eye or spot concealer, it can be used as a contour or all-over base.

5. MCoBeauty Hydrating Day & Night Face Moisturiser dupe for Ole Henriksen C-Rush Brightening Gel Crème

Ole Henriksen’s C-Rush Brightening Gel Crème is a dream product to have as part of your daily routine, and its success rate for many does make it a must-have product. But, with it sitting at a price point of $70, it is not one that everyone can justify purchasing on the regular.

However, its dupe, on the other hand, sits at a modest $32 and is none other than MCoBeauty’s Hydrating Day and Night Face Moisturiser. This beautiful product is also a lightweight and non-greasy daily moisturiser that leaves your skin feeling nourishing and restored.
